Berit, Dagmar, Emil…

We’ve had a few storms lately and I can’t help but wonder:

Whose job is it to name storms and why do they choose old people’s name? What extra qualifications do you need?

Some of these storms are “international”. Well, they often come our way via Norway (maybe that explains the names?). How do they decide who gets to name the storm, or do they change names when they cross the borders. Like Dagmar – she goes on to Finland and is called then called Päivi?
